Tuition
At most universities, tuition increases each year. At UD your grants and scholarships increase each year too. The result? The net tuition you pay stays the same all four years. 

Fees
Most universities charge fees for labs, courses, orientation, etc. At UD there are no surcharges, fees, or hidden expenses. There are no surprises here. 

Textbooks
Nationally, 70% of students reported skipping buying books because of costs. if you visit campus and file the FAFSA, you can receive a textbook scholarship worth up to $4,000 (over four years). 

Four-year success
Because of our four-year tuition plan, UD students have reduced borrowing by more than 22%, and our four-year graduation rate increased eight percentage points in just one year.

We are UD 
All are welcome here. Our Catholic, Marianist tradition embraces community, where approximately 85% of students live on campus. 

We’re the #1 Catholic university for sponsored engineering research and development.

We offer 45 service and social action clubs, so we can make a difference together.

With more than 8,200 undergraduates, a 15:1 student-faculty ratio, and an average class size of 26, we are constantly interactive and inspired by one another.

When’s the game? Our Division I athletics offer thrills for athletes and spectators alike.

Each year, for more than 50 years on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, students “adopt” a local child for a night of cheer-filled holiday fun through Christmas on Campus-—one of UD’s greatest traditions.
